How did you other NP's find learning to drive and driving in general?
I'm finding it hard to keep on top of all the different details to driving, it's like multi-tasking on a whole new level for me and I'm finding it quite difficult.
Plus my short term memory is pretty shabby so you can be sure that my next lesson will always involve reminding me of everything we learnt the week before lol.
My instructor makes jokes about my memory now.
Things have improved since I bought a driving manual, I'm finding it easier learning off of the text book than the instructor showing me, which is surprising because academic learning usually goes better without ploughing through text books alone.
Also when I am practising for the theory test, I am fine with the multiple choice questions and always get most of the questions right, but the hazard videos I'm still failing, because it's about watching a video and clicking the moment you see a hazard developing, and I don't really do well paying attention to those kind of details.
I'm worried that because it's all so detail orientated, that I might not actually excel at it. Which is where you come in.
Did it take you long to learn?
Do you enjoy driving now that you can?
Did you pass your test the first time, or how many times did you have to sit it before you finally passed?
Is there anything that helped you that I could try?
